OK, so I'm a little confused as to the hierarchy of WG

Precisely. I'm sorry for not being clear on that point. The WG I'm
proposing would be a part of LSB, and hence would its deliverables also.

I totally agree. But I do believe there then needs to be a separate
subgroup to address the issues. XML (and its many related specs) is
really a moving target and the general LSB WG membership may not
have the expertise/experience to produce an XML/SGML module for LSB
in a timely manner.

"getting all my ducks in a row", so to speak.
